Daily Jot: The Democrat's Farrakhan problem - Bill Wilson -
The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) is calling for seven Democratic Members of Congress to resign. They include radical Islamist Congressman and Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee, Hakim Mohammed (aka Keith Ellison), Maxine Waters, Barbara Lee, Danny Davis, Andre Carson, Gregory Meeks, and Al Green. RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said, "(Nation of Islam leader Louis) Farrakhan is the moral equivalent of a leader of the KKK. If it was discovered that members of Congress had met with the leader of the KKK, they would need to resign. In this case, for meeting with, and embracing, Louis Farrakhan, nothing short of resignation is acceptable from these seven Democrats."
In response, the Nation of Islam's Executive Council wrote an open letter proving the RJC's point, saying that the RJC represented "White supremacy and the continuing effort to destroy our community... Remember, it was the same Satanic Jews of yesterday that conspired against Jesus and had him killed by the ruling authority of the Roman Empire." The Nation of Islam's website says, "We believe we are people of God's choice." It also declares: "We believe in the truth of the Bible, but we believe that it has been tampered with and must be reinterpreted so that mankind will not be snared by the falsehoods that have been added to it." Yet, the Nation of Islam believes in only one God, allah, who has no son.
The Nation of Islam website also calls for: The United States to be divided between Blacks and Whites; all black Believers of Islam to be freed from all prisons; a new nation free from "white courts"; an exemption of black Believers of Islam from all taxation; Free education, including the freedom of Muslim teachers to teach and train their people in their ways; a prohibition on intermarriage or race mixing; Black Believers of Islam not fighting in any American war; and that Master W. Fard Muhammad is "the long-awaited "Messiah" of the Christians and the "Mahdi" of the Muslims." Fard is considered a co-founder of the Nation of Islam and its messiah. Farrakhan also once referred to the immediate ex-"president" as God.
The support of Farrakhan by these Members of Congress is the equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan and they should resign. Much of the Democratic Party leadership is fine with Farrakhan otherwise Keith Ellison would not have been elected as the Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee. It's also fair to note that history documents incredible ties between the KKK and the Democratic Party, and the Democratic Party's resistance to ending slavery and efforts to resist to the civil rights movement. When people call for the deconstruction of anti-Semitism and racism, a good place to start is the stronghold of political parties. How often are the accusers doing exactly what they accuse others of doing? As Christ said in Matthew 24:4, "Take heed that no man deceive you." Anti-Semitism and racism have no place in our society.
